Your first task is to break the Licorice Links in the bottom corners. With the Licorice Links gone you’ll be able to spread Jam across the bottom corners and it will become a bit easier to make special candies since you’ve got more space to make them in. The quicker you break the Licorice Links the easier the level will become.
With candies of five colors on the playing field you shouldn’t have too many problems making special candies. Mainly focus on making special candies you can use to hit the Candy Ice Cubes / Licorice Swirls at the edges of the playing field since that’s the only way to clear them and spread Jam across those locations.
Once you’ve broken the Licorice Links you should match candies near the bottom of the playing field (or as low as possible) as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies and hopefully start a chain reaction that will create new opportunities to make special candies.
